Looking for new plan/phone for my Dad

Hey there guys,

So my Dad is 65 and he's never owned a Cellphone. I convinced him that he should get a decent plan (Around 30-35) that includes Talk/Text and a little Data. He has his own iPod Touch so he's kept in the loop with Apple products and PCs.

Im guessing that the Wind $29 plan is the best bet? I might need to look into getting him a phone as well.

Any suggestions?

Have a look at the coverage map for wind as well... Look at Koodo... Virgin... Fido...
Koodo=Telus
Virgin=Bell
Fido=-Rogers

Well, I'm not exactly looking for an iPhone for him. I just don't want to get him an 8 year old flip phone.
He doesn't travel much at all but he's officially retired in the next 2-3 months.

I called Rogers (my provider) and they were no help or even seemed interested in helping me find a plan/phone for him.
I'm leaning more and more towards the Wind $29 plan, the coverage seems to be good around our area (North Vancouver).
Not sure what Koodo has in terms of promos but I haven't heard anything.

Galaxy nexus on $29 plan may be a nice option, if he can adjust himself to android.

If you want to start him out slow get him a BB 9320, a BB keyboard can't be beat for texting ability. If you think he can handle something a little more complicated get him a Galaxy Nexus.
